Thank you, I had sent the message again as I noticed the mistakes in my first message but, was not quick enough to stop it; woe! Just for clarification, is the slim version on ninite? I like to use slim programs if I can.

Thanks cheers Heather

I've never heard of a slim version of Thunderbird.

Gene, just for the record, the term "slim" is often used to mean portable, as it does not involve any changes to the operating system on which it is used (sometimes considered "bloat" of a sort).

  "Slim"can also  refer to a program that can be installed without also surreptitiously installing unwanted crapware.  For example, CCleaner has a slim version that installed only CCleaner itself without other unwanted Piriform programs like Avastt, which many blind computer users often wind up installing inadvertently much to their chagrin, because it is very difficult to uninstall. Thunderbird has no slim version, but downloading it from the Ninite site ensures that no unwanted garbage will also be installed.

Gerald,

           Also correct.  A third meaning sometimes meant by "slim" in reference to a program is a version that's "stripped down" to its core functions, dumping most of the seldom used "bells and whistles" that are in full versions.

           If ever there were a fuzzy adjective in the world of computing, "slim" is it!

Also, when I had window bridge, there was a part of it called slimware, which, I found out, was a dos screenreader.  But I didn’t know that until I was getting rid of window bridge.  Pam.
